Donetsk, Feb 20 – DAN. The Norwegian Nobel Committee has received the submission for nomination of a Gorlovka resident Anna Tuv for the Nobel Peace Prize.
"My documents have already been sent to the Nobel Committee in Oslo alongside the petition signed by 6,774 people. It means I have already become a nominee," Tuv said.
She said the documents had been filed on January 28, 2019 and that her nomination is supported by Donbass, Russian and Italian people.
Tuv said she was grateful to the residents of her native town, who remember the tragic story of her family.
An Italian charity Aiutateci a salvare i bambini, its chairman Ennio Bordato and a member of Italian Chamber of Deputies Vito Comencini have proposed Tuv's candidacy.
There are 304 candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize for 2019 out of which 219 are individuals and 85 are organizations.
Anna Tuv lost her arm in a shelling launched by Kiev forces on May 26, 2015. Her husband and 11-year-old daughter died in the attack, her two-year-old son sustained multiple wounds, and her new born baby suffered concussion. Today, Anna is conveying the information about the situation in Donbass to the international community and makes her contribution into the peace settlement. In November 2017 she spoke in the Geneva Palace of Nations at a session of the UN Council for Human Rights.
